Oh Boy! This Is Hilarious!
31 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Is Three Sappy People a pleasant and hilarious Three Stooges short film? Well I most certainly think that it is! In my honest to goodness point of view, this Three Stooges short film is not just pleasant and hilarious, it is totally and completely hilarious! I have to give this a hands down, this is another one of the best Three Stooges shorts that I have ever seen in my whole entire life, and not only that, but it has also became one of my favorite Three Stooges shorts that I have ever seen! So all in all, the Three Stooges have perfected another extremely hysterical short film that I laughed at all the way through!

Well what else do I think of this short? I think that it is honestly one of their funniest shorts of the year 1939, because it is one of the ones that really stands out a lot! And considering that I own this as part of the Three Stooges Collection, Volume Two, I can watch this whenever I like!

So in short, if you are looking for a hysterical Three Stooges short to watch, then this is one that you should watch, because trust me, it really is something that hysterical!

10/10
